Lyhyt elämäkerta
Laurie Lee was born and raised in a rural part of England in a bygone era of innocence and simplicity, which he lovingly described in his most famous work, an autobiographical trilogy consisting of Cider with Rosie (1959), As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning (1969) and A Moment of War (1991). Cider with Rosie continues to be one of the most popular books in Britain, and is sometimes used as a school text in English literature. He fought on the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War, and during World War II he made documentary films for the UK government. Before devoting himself entirely to writing in 1951, Lee worked as a journalist and as a scriptwriter. In 1950 he married Catherine Francesca Polge and the couple had one daughter, Jessy.

Hmm.
This seems to be one of those books that people remember with affection but if they read it today with fresh eyes, they might view some aspects of it differently.

Glorious use of the language, and such a tragic story. Laurie Lee is one of the finest exponents of English whom I've read. One of those books that its worth reading for the language, let alone the subject matter.
